Palestine YMCA reaches half-way milestone in Soccer Complex fundraising

PALESTINE, August 6, 2014— Although summer slowed fundraising efforts a bit, the Palestine YMCA is well over half-way to their goal of raising $1 million for the new Alex Patel Soccer Complex, according to YMCA’s David Hendrix.

Hendricks says the community has “really stepped up,” and the Complex will not only be a great asset to community children physically and mentally, but will also allow teams to be brought in from out of town to compete.

“We’re really excited about this,” said Hendricks. “Sports tourism is really a coming thing as far as economic development.”

KYYK’s Gary Richards spoke with Hendricks about the coming Complex, including future expansion plans, and how the community can help. Click below for more.
